Product description


"[Winn] offers plenty of logical and commonsense advice for parents on countering dyslexia's negative impact on their kids, all in an easy to follow style...this compassionate work will reward parents in search of guidance." --Publishers Weekly

"A very accessible and in-depth look at dyslexia. Perfect for parents who want to know what's what and what steps to take. Highly recommended." --Wishing Shelf

"A comprehensive yet nurturing, caring, and compassionate book about this condition. Don has done a superlative job reviewing the main concerns relevant to dyslexia. There are so many issues--social, behavioral, cognitive, reading, and coping, but Don tries to address all of these in a kind, caring fashion. An important and much-needed text." --Michael F. Shaughnessy, PhD, Professor of Special Education Eastern New Mexico University

"It is essential that we help dyslexic children understand their strengths and challenges in order to have a balanced view of themselves. A realistic understanding of what comes easy and what does not leads to resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity--among the most necessary of life's skills. Parents have the unique and important responsibility and opportunity to not only help their children survive school, but ultimately thrive in life. With this book in hand, you will be empowered by the knowledge of how dyslexia impacts your child and how to raise a healthy human being with dyslexia." --Dan Peters, PhD, Licensed Psychologist and author of Make your Worrier a Warrior, From Worrier to Warrior, and The Warrior Workbook

"This is a wonderful modern 'one step at a time' resource for anyone with a child who struggles with dyslexia. Beginning with how to identify and evaluate key issues and effects related to dyslexia, it then moves through learning styles, behavioral symptoms, raising good readers, interventions, developing self-esteem, parental perspective, advocating, and everything in between. Winn reveals cutting-edge strategies and research to help every parent and child work together and become the best they can be. Throughout, the author's personal experience serves as a constant encouragement." --The US Review of Books
